Hooked On A Raccoon

We feel bad about posting that creepy teaser for The Strain so early in the morning. Below is an antidote, the just-released second trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, to get you dancing:

This one gives a longer glimpse of Rocket, the raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), expected to be a particular hit with kids (commenting on the first trailer, Entertainment Weekly warned, “Hipster parents, stare into the eyes of your child’s next Christmas gift”).

Marvel, alert to the growing interest, recently announced the launch of their “first original prose novel,” Rocket Raccoon & Groot: Steal the Galaxy! by Dan Abnett (Marvel; ages 9 and up). Groot, by the way, is an extraterrestrial plant monster, voiced by Vin Diesel. Since his only words are “I am Groot,” sounds like an easy job, but Diesel claims a lot goes in to it.

For all the tie-ins, see our downloadable spreadsheet, Guardians-Movie-Tie-ins.

Collections of the original Marvel comics are also in print.
